Just a 5 minute walk to the city bus, close to Maroubra and Coogee beaches, and 14 km to airport. We are in a quiet location within walking distance to cafes, restaurants parks, and fabulous golf clubs.
Malabar is a coastal suburb situated around Long Bay. Malabar is mostly residential, but with large plots of land devoted to the Randwick Golf Course,and parks. A small group of shops is located at Prince Edward Street, close to the intersection with Anzac Parade.
You can be completely private, but we are close by for any information or assistance you may need. Check-in and out times are flexible depending on whether guests are coming and going on same day.
With regard to the short-term let, we mainly want to rent it our for period of mid May to early August or as close as possible to the period stated.
Please note although there is an extra single bed (extra person $30) which can be made up in the living area, the apartment is not suitable for children under 5 due to stairs, and balcony access.
Apartment is fully self-contained. If guests want to use the bbq they are most welcome. Help yourselves to variety of herbs and fruit from the garden
Interaction with Guests
We live downstairs. Guests are welcome to knock on the interconnected at any time for information or a chat. Or guests can be completely private as they have their own entrance.
The neighbourhood is quiet as house is in a residential street. As the bay is quite small, there are never large crowds using the beach. The golf couse & club is very picturesque being on the ocean front. The ocean pool is very popular with guests and with ourselves as it is 5 minutes walk so no need to take anything but your towel and sunscreen.
Nearest drinking venues are the RSL club which also provides reasonably priced and varied meals. The golf club is more expensive but still good value.
Buses within 5 minute walk. No on site parking but plenty of free street parking. Taxi from the airport takes about 20 mins and costs $40-$50
Other Things to Note
If you are a golfer, apparently this is golfer heaven!
We are an easygoing couple and we can say the same for our guests. We expect you would treat the apartment as if you were in your own home and also smoking inside the apartment,
Helen's place was the absolute perfect spot for a restful evening before heading home from a wonderful week in Oz. The area is peaceful and beautiful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and all the amenities you need included - fast wifi, well stocked kitchen, fresh linens, etc. Helen was such a welcoming host and I felt completely relaxed. Malabar is lovely and right down the street there is a very cool ocean-fed pool which is great for a swim. Convenience store nearby and AWESOME balcony view overlooking the shore. I can't wait to come back here sometime!
Gorgeous view, well appointed, clean, roomy, lots of wardrobe space, perfectly quiet - the upstairs apartment in Helen and Sean's house is just as described. To note, guests will appreciate a rental to get around, but Malabar is by no means far from wherever you'd want to go in Sydney, and for everyday convenience shopping Maroubra Junction is but 5 min. away by car. We absolutely second the praise noted here before and will most certainly be back.
Helen's self contained apartment is definitely a haven by the sea with beautiful sweeping views out to the ocean.
The apartment has it's own private entrance and has everything you need including a full kitchen complete with cooking facilities. It's quiet, clean, roomy and has a comfortable bed.
Parking is readily available on the street out the front of the house, and shops and restaurants are only a few minutes drive away.
I was returning to Australia on an early morning flight and Helen kindly accommodated my early arrival.
Unfortunately I was only there for 24 hours, I would have loved to have stayed longer.
I'll definitely be back again!
Lovely welcome, shes nice. Offerered me food and drinks.
will come here again to stay in Sydney.
The apartment itself is really nice, spacious and wel equipped. The view is amazing, we couldn't get enough of it.
Upon arrival we got a warm welcome from Helen. Due to an unexpected delay, we arrived late and we didn't have time anymore to go to the shops. Helen provided us with some food which we really appreciated.
The apartment is 45 minutes from Sydney CBD, but the prettyl ocation really makes up for it!
An amazing apartment, nice and clean just as represented in the pictures. Helen and her partner where most lovely, friendly and welcoming. i thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to stay there again in the near future. I cannot recommend it enough if you're looking for a quiet coastal get away.
It was great to Helen & her place in Malabar was just perfect in every way. Would highly recommend it. Extremely comfortable bed, very clean & superb view.
Helen was a fantastic host. Very easy to contact & very helpful.
Will be staying here again for sure!

We are from Ireland, but have lived in Sydney for over 30 years. We enjoy travelling, theatre, movies, nature, walking, and meeting people. We are happy to help in any way we can, but you can be assured of total privacy if you just want to relax and do your own thing.
